All hail to the Monarch.
It all started in 1846 when John Dewar Sr. laid the foundations for this famous brand. While he was known as a pretty good Whisky blender, the actual breakthrough happened after the company passed on to his sons. Not to exaggerate, but they truly turned out to be a duo of impressively fruitful apples that took the legacy of their father’s company to the very top of the ladder. How? With propelling the brand into the global market, a brilliant marketing strategy, a meticulous attention to detail, and by just casually pioneering the concept of “marrying” — assembling a blend and then returning it to the cask to homogenize together.
Today the brand lies in the hands of Bacardi, but their logo still remains a Celtic truth knot, made out of three D’s that symbolize the legacy of John Dewar and his two sons — John Alexander Dewar and Tommy Dewar.
Their 15-Year-Old blended Scotch is the first one that was created by the Master Blender Stephanie Macleod. It’s a wonderfully balanced expression that’s matured in Sherry and Bourbon casks before getting blended together— and you how it goes... first comes the blend, then comes marriage in selected oak casks, then comes an exceptionally smooth Whisky. And, fitting to its regal name, this Monarch surrounded itself with some of that bling-bling as well, winning a gold medal for two consecutive years at the International Spirits Challenge for the best Blended Scotch between 12 and 20 years old.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The subtle nose has notes of malt, honey, fruit, and citrus, along with a touch of oak. Just a hint of smoke, sherry, and floral notes pep it up.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's creamy and rich on the palate with some prominent honey and toffee notes accompanied by dried fruit, floral, and spicy oak.
Finishes medium and slightly warming, with a pleasant peppery oak & vanilla combo throughout.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Dewar's 15 Year Old and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
